Using Kerberos for Single Sign-On to Exasol.
Exasol supports single-sign functionality using Kerberos. By supporting Kerberos based single sign-on (in JDBC and ODBC), users can authenticate to Exasol using their Kerberos credentials. This allows for a seamless user experience.
Kerberos is centered around its Key Distribution Center(KDC). To use Kerberos based single sign-on in Exasol, a keytab file must be provided by your Key Distribution center or by your Active Directory administrator for Windows system. This keytab file consists of the service principles for Exasol databases. This keytab file is uploaded through EXAoperation.
This feature is only available from 6.0.8 release.
